Do virtual museums really provide added value to end-users, or do they just contribute to the abundance of images? Does the World Wide Web save endangered cultural heritage, or does it foster a society with less variety? These and other related questions are raised and answered in this book, the result of a long path across the digital heritage landscape. It provides a comprehensive view on issues and achievements in digital collections and cultural content.

“This book ... looks at a much neglected side of the digital age and considers what the world wide web provides for our culture. ... It provides much information and discussion about e-collections and their relationship with the culture we are familiar with. The book offers a sound introduction to the subject which is very rarely considered in the massive coverage given to all aspects of the digital age as portrayed by users of the world wide web.” D. M. Hutton, Kybernetes, Vol. 39 (2), 2010
"This is an extremely useful book, richly illustrated with examples, with three sections: cultural content, technological framework and exploitation. It is carefully documented and while focussed on European developments, draws on examples from Australia, Canada, China, Japan and the United States. [...]" Kim H. Veltman, Scientific Director, VMMI, Maastricht
